Will this work? HP 10GB Mellanox Connectx-2 PCIe 10GBe and Windows 8.1 + Windows Server 2012 R2


I’d like to ask, will this work?

Two of these adapters and Asus Maximus VII Formula with Windows 8.1 and VII Impact Windows Server 2012 R2?

I’d like to use my server as better & safer NAS. It’s running raid 1 + 0 [360 MB/s both ways] and I’m limited by Intel 1 gbps nic.

Please let me know,

kind regards


If case any of You wondered,

Yes, it does work. TCP/iP perfectly, Windows 8.1/Server 2012R2 and 10.

Works like charm, they just heat up a bit, so I suggest to cool them actively wtih 40 mm fan, which fits perfectly,
